Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz, one of the few women serving in Washington, has been shot in the brain and is fighting for her life.
Rep. Giffords and 18 others were shot in Tucson on Saturday morning at a ‘Congress on Your Corner’ event. A 9-year-old child was among the killed and also a federal judge. In total six victims are deceased.
Rep Giffords has been heavily criticized by Sarah Palin and actually appeared on Palin’s ‘hit list’ the list of 20 politicians that Palin targeted with rifle-sights on her website last year.
Giffords speaks on March 25, 2010 about death threats made against her, the vandalism of her office and being on Palin’s ‘hit list’. She says that in 30 years, there has never been such a call to violence in America with overheated rhetoric.
Of course there is no confirmation that the killer Jared Lee Loughner even knows who Sarah Palin is, let alone is taking her ‘hit list’ as a call to action. Reports are that the killer has a criminal record and possibly a record of psychological problems.
Politics Daily columnist Matt Lewis says that Sarah Palin has removed this map from her website and is highly critical of someone like us for posting Sarah Palin’s map to underscore the nature of American culture.
There is no doubt that Sarah Palin has major company in using violent metaphors as a standard of excellence in America. Anne is constantly critiquing Victoria’s Secret’s bombshell bras and Michael Bey’s commercials for the brand.
America has Godly-sanctioned violence in our soul, and the National Rifle Association insists that this is America at its best, exercising our God-given rights. We disagree.
Anne of Carversville does not approve at all of these kinds Palin of ‘hit lists’, especially after watching Sarah Palin calmly shoot her caribou on the Discovery Channel, for all the world to watch.
We find her almost flip attitude in killing the caribou totally disconcerting, and we will not be politically correct in being afraid to say so. Call us weak-knee liberals, even though we believe we are good Americans living in Philadelphia.
Sarah Palin can pride herself on being a Mama Grizzly.
We are Snake Charmers, non-violent and deeply afraid for America’s future. We are aggressive in standing up against terrorism, but nothing frightened Anne more than taking a drive into Wyoming, just an hour north of Boulder. She thought she was in anti-American hate country, in a land no different than Iran.
This is Sarah Palin’s “hit list” and after that, another viewing of Mama Grizzlie Sarah Palin bagging her caribou with pleasure and a great sense of accomplishment:
